I really enjoy woodworking.  This is my second project and like the first, (the king bed)I couldn't be more pleased.  These are my new privacy screens. 

 I searched Pinterest for ideas and then came up with this simple plan.  I used 1/2" by 2" boards to create a frame, using my Kreg jig.  Then attached the thin 1/4" x 1" lattice slats on the back with brad nails..

I used hook and eyes to hang them from the existing railing so they are removable.  I finished up the primer coat of paint last night and was excited to hang them.

 They still allow airflow but block the view just a bit more than the vertical posts alone.

I even like the look from the yard.  I just dread having to paint again -- all those little pieces.  Think I'll save that task for another weekend. Have you ever used Pinterest for inspiration?
